Higher Adoption Rate of Surgical Masks in the Healthcare Sector

Tue, 09 June 2020 3:59

Globally, the rising number of surgical procedures is driving the demand for surgical masks. N95 is the most commonly used surgical masks to prevent surgeons from exposure to pathogens by filtering at least 95% of the airborne particles. In light of favorable government regulations and policies, the adoption rate of surgical masks such as N95 is projected to witness a rise.

Recently, the FDA approved Battelle’s process that decontaminates N95 masks to address the rising demand for masks due to the coronavirus outbreak. The Battelle’s uses a vapor phase hydrogen peroxide process to decontaminate the masks used by the healthcare providers. The rising prevalence of COVID-19 worldwide has resulted in a drastic shortage of surgical masks for healthcare professionals. The increasing purchase rate of surgical masks by the local population has decelerated the availability of masks for healthcare professionals.
